2018-2019 Operas within Driving Distance

September 7. Tchaikovsky: Eugene Onegin

Marius Kwiecen sings the title role with Charles Castronovo as Lenski, the friend he will kill in the second act. Ana Maria Martinez rounded out the powerhouse cast when it was first broadcast two years ago.

Massenet: Don Quichotte. August 31

Fifty years before Man of La Mancha graced Broadway, Massenet's version premiered at the Paris Opera. It is still staged when there is a world-class bass to sing the title role, and Ferruccio Furlanetto was the star in December, 2016, when Lyric Opera of Chicago performed it last. Clementine Margaine was his Dulcinee.

Bellini: Norma. August 10

This archival performance from 2017 presents Sandra Radvanovsky at the peak of her powers as the Druid priestess, with Elizabeth Deshong as Adalgisa and Russell Thomas as Pollione. Antonio Silvestri is the leader of the Druids, Oroveso.

Verdi: Atilla. August 3

Ildar Abradazov is Atilla who returns the sword that will kill him to the Odabella of Saoia Hernandez in this performance from last winter.
